Today I picked out the six colors for the June shipment of the Koigu Mini-Skeins Club (hint: there's purple in there!) so I figured it was about time that I showed you what last month's shipment looked like!
Meet the first-ever Koigu Mini-Skeins package, the May shipment:
What's that? You want to see the yarn, not the packaging? Ok here you go:
Pretty darn cute, no?
I have to tell you that the Koigu minis just about kill me with their cuteness. As I was going through each colorway making minis on my niddy noddy, I kept lining them up in different arrangements, piling them up, petting them . . . and I kinda didn't want to send them away!
Once they were all made up and I was literally surrounded by adorable minis, I started putting them into their packaging . . . and kept going "awww!" the whole time as I lined them up all neatly next to eachother! They are just too cute!
I wanted to make something out of the minis and have been wanting to try a wooleater square, so I mashed the two up and quickly whipped out two wooleaters with these colors:
I used about half of 5 of the 6 minis to make these squares, which ended up about 4.5" square. I basically stopped at this point because I got bored ;o)
Then I thought, what am I going to do with two little crazy-colored squares? They did seem like the perfect size to turn into a notions bag . . .
And so I did!
A quick little free pattern for this Mini Pouch is coming your way tomorrow or Friday . . . stay tuned!
